UPDATED (27/05/24): GVCA and IIGh Launch baseline Report on Venture Capital and Private Equity in Ghana

This report was commissioned by the Ghana Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (GVCA) and Impact Investing Ghana (IIGh). It addresses a research gap that was highlighted in 2021 in a IIGh report, which noted that besides a Ghana Private Equity and Venture Capital Ecosystem Study conducted by the World Bank in 2016, there have been virtually no other dedicated comprehensive studies on Ghana’s venture capital and private equity (VC/PE) ecosystem.

The baseline study seeks to achieve three objectives:

  1. To help fill a major data gap on the performance of VCPE funds to date, especially in driving impact investing and gender equality;
  2. To engage and equip key stakeholders across the impact investing ecosystem with locally relevant, actionable insights to catalyze the growth of venture capital and impact investing in Ghana;
  3. To strengthen the capacity of key impact investing stakeholders to drive evidence-based decisions, investment activity, and benchmarking.
